Byron Bernstein is a professional gamer, live streamer, and entertainer, better known as his alias ‘Reckful’.
His popularity had a huge growth spurt during his time playing the MMORPG World of Warcraft. He was unarguably one of the best players to ever grace the game, earning the #1 rank multiple times.
From there, he has dominated professional poker and other online games such as Hearthstone. Since Byron is most well known for his impact in the gaming community, we’re going to break down all of the equipment he uses to be the best.
Reckful Gaming Setup
Mionix AVIOR 7000 Ergonomic Ambidextrous Optical Gaming Mouse.
The mionix AVOIR 7000 is designed to sit in your hand perfectly. It has up to 16.8 million LED color combos so you can make it look sick and match your other gear, too.
It’s lightweight and has 128 kb of built-in memory to save macros and settings. With up to 7,000 DPI, you’ll get an edge over the competition with faster mous movement.
A mouse is a needed investment for any serious gamer. It will make your gaming sessions more comfortable, lets you shoot more accurately, and improves the overall gaming experience.
If you want to hear the competition before they hear you, a good headset is needed. Reckful uses the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250’s. These are open style studio headphones that will make you hear games like never before.
They are lightweight, so say goodbye to sore ears after those long gaming sessions. The padded headband is adjustable and Beyerdynamic added soft velour ear pads.
I don’t know about you, but I hate when my ears are red and sore after having a heavy headset on for hours.
Oh, you also get a 2 year manufacturer warranty if you need to return them, too. Enjoy them, try to break them in, but it’s completely okay if you want to give them back.
Click, click, click. You’ve definitely heard the symphony of key strokes if you’ve ever watched Reckful’s stream. Especially when he’s playing Typeracer.
If you’ve ever thought “What keyboard does Reckful use?”, we have your answer. He’s gone through a few but this is one of his favourites.
The Leopold FC660C is hard to get your hands on and for a good reason. It has 66 gray keys with clicky mechanical keys. It’s compact and will fit on your desk without getting in the way.
Intel Boxed Core i7-6900K Processor.
To support your gaming habits, you need some good hardware. The Intel Core i7-6900K processor enables simultaneous, compute intensive, multi-threaded workloads, powered by 8 cores and 16 threads.
What does that mean in non-nerdy talk? It means that your games will run smoother and you can have more programs going at once.
This is one of the best CPUs on the market and offers high speed storage, up to 4 discrete graphics cards, and Thunderbolt technology.
It also features quad channel DDR4 memory, up to 20MB of Intel Smart Cache, and is fully unlocked for unleashed performance.

Our favorite video from Reckful
If you haven’t seen this video from Reckful yet, you definitely should. It was a great moment from one of his live streams a couple of years ago. In the recording Byron gives one of the best examples(in a very entertaining fashion) of just how much one billion dollars really is.
